Postdoctoral Fellowship: 2023 Postdoctoral Fellowships – Migration and Mobility, University of Tübingen (Deadline 31st March 2022)

The Centre for Advanced Studies “Migration and Mobility in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages” at the University of Tübingen, Germany invites applications for resident fellowships starting in 2023. The fellowships are available for a duration between one and twelve months.

The Centre for Advanced Studies, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), brings together scholars from a wide range of disciplines working on migration and mobility in Europe and the Mediterranean between 250 and 900 CE. The overall aim of the Centre is to explore new approaches to migration and mobility in this period and to set the scholarly debate in the field on a new footing.

Fellowships are available for scholars at all stages of their academic career who have completed their doctoral degree and established an independent research profile. Applicants should be engaged in a research project in any relevant discipline that is related to the Centre’s interests in migration and mobility in the period and area in question. The Centre also welcomes applications from scholars working on migration and mobility in the contemporary world whose research has a strong focus on theoretical and methodological issues.

Fellows are required to reside in Tübingen, where they pursue their own research project while also participating in the colloquia held at the Centre. For the duration of their stay fellows receive a stipend covering  accommodation, travel, and/or living expenses in accordance with their needs and the pertinent regulations of Tübingen University and the DFG.

Applications should include a CV, a research proposal for the project to be pursued at Tübingen (2000 words), an indication of the months the applicant would like to spend at the Centre and the kind of financial support they require. All materials should be sent in a single pdf document to luisa.luiz@uni-tuebingen.de by March 31, 2022.

Should you have any questions pertaining to the details of the fellowship program or the application, please contact the coordinator Thomas Kohl (Thomas.kohl@uni-tuebingen.de).
